The Great Unwanted is the debut album by British indie pop band Lucky Soul. The band self-released it through Ruffa Lane Records on 9 April 2007. The album is heavily influenced by 1960s soul music, featuring string and brass arrangements. Its romantic melodies are often accompany more doleful lyrics. The album received acclaim from music critics, who praised the careful fusion of Lucky Soul's influences.

Look for us, we were the casualties/ Forever paying the price for a life less boring," Howard proclaims. Elsewhere on the album, the toweringly embellished title track from recent EP Ain't Never Been Cool once again sides with the unfairly unloved.

One Kiss Don't Make a Summer. My Darling, Anything. Get Outta Town! The Great Unwanted. Ain't Never Been Cool. The Towering Inferno.
